The SPHC hydrodynamic code was used to simulate impacts of spherical aluminum projectiles on a single-wall aluminum plate and on a generic Whipple shield. Simulations were carried out in two and three dimensions. Projectile speeds ranged from 2 kilometers per second to 10 kilometers per second for the single-wall runs, and from 3 kilometers per second to 40 kilometers per second for the Whipple shield runs. Spallation limit results of the single-wall simulations are compared with predictions from five standard penetration equations, and are shown to fall comfortably within the envelope of these analytical relations. Ballistic limit results of the Whipple shield simulations are compared with results from the AUTODYN-2D and PAM-SHOCK-3D codes presented in a paper at the Hypervelocity Impact Symposium 2000 and the Christiansen formulation of 2003.
